you can change the environment for maybe how people are going to act come january. do i think it's sad that this is where we are? a little bit. but, you know, i'm a democrat. which means i was born an optimist. i believe all things are possible. so i'll take these first few steps as opposed to making grand, ideological statements that are big symbols and do nothing to really help us move forward. >> one question follow-up to you, kiki on that, immigration reformers, they've been depending on a budget deal. i think they assume let's get that done, then we can get immigration overhamm eoverhaule. i think most of us feel that is pretty much unfortunately dead in the water. it should have been something, at least the dreamer portion, should have been something that could have gotten done a long time ago. >> well, it may have been able to have gotten done a long time ago. that's a disappointment. i'm not ready to give up on that. maybe not the whole shebang. but the dreamer portion. if we can get the budget moving forward that lets a litling bit of oxygen back in the room, right? i would su

needs an ally. ...are the hands that do good things for the whole community: the environment, seniors, kids, and animals. that's why we created the share the love event. by the end of this year, the total donated by subaru could reach 35 million dollars. you get a great deal on a new subaru. we'll donate 250 dollars to a choice of charities that benefit your community. it feels good to be a helping hand. >>> queen latifah, lil' kim, missy eliot, nicki minaj. among these artists are foundational mcs, those who have gone platinum, who have built multi-platform careers and those who have redefined hip hop as we know it. but rather than talk about the distinctive timber of light voice or the utterly unique lyrical quality of eve's story telling, or the way missy redefined what a hip hop video could do or the massively complicated gender-bending multiple personas that nicki minaj harnesses in her music. rather than assess them on their talent or sonic appeal, these artists are typically relegated to the category, female rappers, or more recently, femme-cs. now let me be clear, i think it m

to be a challenge to get anything through the house in this environment. they've been difficult to get through. i think it's important we recognize that working families should have a decent wage and raising the minimum wage is something that should be a prerequisi prerequisite. we should get that done. that shouldn't even be controversial. it helps our whole economy grow. we certainly want people who work to be able to afford their family budget. so i would hope this would be noncontroversial. n we've done it in the past. i hope we do it again. >> in fact, you've been quite vociferous about it. in your home stand of maryland, two county there is have raised their minimum wages to $11.50 an hour. we've seen this in other local governments across the country. do you think it's the only way this initiative is going to succeed, keep it local, give up on congress, and the federal increase? >> every time we've increased the minimum wage, it's helped our economy. every time. we've heard predictions it would cost jobs. it increases jobs. it increases livability, the standard of living for americans. so
